The Hindrances to Mourning
1 Corinthians 4:9
For, I think, God has exhibited us apostles last of all, as men condemned to death; because we have become a spectacle to the world, both to angels and to men.
"Why is light given to him who suffers, And life to the bitter of soul,
For man is born for trouble, As sparks fly upward.
"Man, who is born of woman, Is short-lived and full of turmoil.
You know my reproach and my shame and my dishonor; All my adversaries are before You.
For all our days have declined in Your fury; We have finished our years like a sigh.
As for the days of our life, they contain seventy years, Or if due to strength, eighty years, Yet their pride is but labor and sorrow; For soon it is gone and we fly away.
